Bulldogs Welcome Mark Kurzawski

Bulldogs are excited to announce another piece of the puzzle with the addition of Coach Mark Kurzawski.  He will join the organization as the 07’ Bantam Major Head Coach.  Mark’s youth career started in Oaklawn, IL before heading off to the Windsor Spitfires in the OHL as a Defensemen.  He excelled during his time in the OHL and was a 2nd Round Draft pick of the Chicago Blackhawks in the 1986 NHL entry draft.  He played a couple seasons in the Blackhawks system, before deciding to hang up his skates due to on-going injuries.

Mark’s coaching career started shortly thereafter with camps and clinics at Southwest Ice Arena  ranging from Pre mites to Adults. In the late 90’s to early 2000’s Mark spent 10 years coaching  at Team Illinois AAA, which included winning a USA Hockey  National Championship.  Recently Mark spent the last 5 seasons at the Vikings Hockey club head coaching the 06 and 05 CSDHL birth years.  Mark was inducted into the Illinois Hockey Hall of Fame in 2013.  We look forward to welcoming Mark,  as he looks to guide our 07’s, fresh off a Chi-Town Shuffle Championship, into a successful Bantam Major season.

Congrats to our friends the Junkyard Dogs shuffling through a great weekend. The Dogs record of 23 wins, 11 losses and 3 ties over the course of three days resulted in two Championships, two Runners up and one Quarter finalist.  The 2005 and 2007 teams were crowned champions in the AAA division while the 2006 and 2009 teams lost by one goal in the finals.  The Junkyard Dogs continue with successful turnouts year after year in the Chi-Town Shuffle.  Congrats to all teams! 


The Pro shop at Heartland will be open every day during the Bulldogs skates. We are offering all our regular services including skate sharpening and gear disinfecting.  Any questions can be directed to
